Stevens notes of the title poem, "[t]his group deals with the incessant [conjunctions] between things as they are and things imagined. Although the blue guitar is a symbol of the imagination, it is used most often simply as a reference to the individuality of the poet, meaning by the poet any man of imagination" (front flap).

        Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

      New York: Harper and Brothers, , 1937. Quarto. Pictorial paper boards, black cloth backstrip, pictorial endpapers. With the dust jacket. Housed in a full blue morocco solander box. Walt Disney Studio colour and black and white illustrations throughout. Light wear to extremities, rubbing to corners, occasional spotting to pages and a few pages with light creasing, page 64 with a very tidy professionally repaired closed tear, gift inscription to copyright page, in a very bright dust jacket with just a touch of rubbing at corners and ends of spine. A very attractive copy. First edition, first printing. A lavishly inscribed copy by Walt Disney and 51 of the 64 animators who contributed to making of the film. This is almost certainly one of the copies from RKO's first International Sales Convention at the Hotel George V in Paris, inviting 24 potential European distributors (dubbed "The European Foreign Legion"). The agenda included a screening of Snow White, who was Disney's distributor. For this important two-day business meeting, Disney orchestrated the signing of a number of copies of the book version of Snow White to be given as gifts. He signed boldly at the bottom of the title page, instructing the movie's animators and other creative personnel to sign the title page and opposite, as well as on the front free endpaper. This is one of those few, wonderful signed copies, boasting, in addition to Disney's, signatures from 51 of the film's 64 principal creators. The majority of images for Snow White have been attributed to noted artist Gustaf Tenggren, whose signature appears at the top of the front free endpaper (verso).In addition to Tenggren, signees include six others of the nine lead animators, later affectionately called by Disney his "nine old men:" Les Clark, Milt Kahl, Ward Kimball, Eric Larson, Wolfgang "Woolie" Reitherman and Frank Thomas. The remaining autographs include those of character designers, art directors and supervising animators. Other notable signatories include character designers Albert Hurter and Joe Grant; art directors Charles Phillippi, Terrell Stapp, McLaren Stewart, Harold Miles, Ken Anderson, Kendall O'Connor and Hazel Sewelll and supervising animators Ham Luske and Vladimir Tytla.

        The Hobbit Signed by JRR Tolkien

      UK: George Allen & Unwin, 1937. 1st Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. Very Good. The Hobbit Signed by JRR Tolkien First Edition First Impression George Allen & Unwin 1937. Only 1,500 copies were printed. No inscriptions, no foxing or browning, no loose or damaged pages. Clean and unmarked throughout. In original green cloth covers showings signs of wear. SIGNED by JRR TOLKIEN by way of loosely inserted autograph, written on a bookplate-sized piece of gummed paper inscribed: 'for Mrs Gould'. It was given to Mrs Gould by Tolkien himself after she had helped him with some pension affairs in 1971. She met Tolkien on several occasions and, as thanks for her help, he offered to give her some signed books. Because her work contract prevented her from accepting gratuities, she was unable to accept. Instead, as a consolation, he sent a gum-backed signed slip of paper to her home which she could then attach to one of her own books. The slip of paper has since remained in the envelope it was sent in, alongside a typed letter from Tolkien's secretary - JM Tolhurst - who was the wife of Tolkien's friend Dr Tolhurst. Dr Tolhurst was dining with Tolkien on the evening that the author was taken ill and subsequently died. Further images on request.

        Chinese Ceremonial Paper.

      - Chillicothe: Mountain House Press, 1937. 4to, 79, (3)pp., with 50 paper specimens, many folding, plus collotype frontispiece of a furnace for burning sacred paper, 8 collotype illustrations, and two block prints with photos of the blocks that made them. Quarter leather with paper over boards block printed in gilt, backstrip tooled in gilt, slight wear to foot of backstrip and board edges, occasional small stain to top margins, very good. The often extremely fragile specimens are in excellent condition with only occasional tears to the largest folding examples. One of 125 numbered copies signed by Dard Hunter and printed by him on paper handmade in Asia. A remarkable work impossible to recreate or reproduce. The many annotated paper specimens were gathered by Hunter during journeys in China, "as well as in Indo-China, Java, Sumatra, Siam, Malay Peninsula, and other Asiatic countries where the Chinese have emigrated" and include mock-money, both ancient and contemporary, ornamental burning envelopes and trays, and examples of paper gods. Hunter's work is of pivotal importance in the history of American book making. Immersed in the Arts and Crafts movement at Elbert Hubbard's Roycroft company, Hunter went on to found the first handmade paper mill in America and to create arguably the world's first "one man" books: books he printed on paper he had made with a typeface he had designed, cut, and cast himself. In Chillicothe, Ohio, he founded Mountain House Press and for the next 46 years dedicated himself to the study of papermaking, travelling around the world for his research and authoring 20 books on the subject.

The Book of Newfoundland - Volume Three - Copyright 1967. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Confederation in this volume.

I know of no other case of a Province producing a six-volume work about itself. There have been several sets of books about Canada as a whole, but the Book of Newfoundland concerns itself, in Volumes one and two, solely with the country of Newfoundland and in Volumes three, four, five and six, the Province. They have been published over a period of thirty-eight years, 1937 to 1975." by Joseph R. Smallwood. (Ref. #ACC-C190).. First Edition. Hard Cover. Fine. 9" x 12" Tall. Canadian Geography.
